Amazing cup from which I will be drinking some white tea as soon as the water heats. (Alas, I am relegated to an electrical burner.) Regardless, Kiyomi is an excellent sculptor, potter and artist who deserves everyone's consideration. Doumo arigatou gozaimasu.

Wonderful tumbler that feels and looks so good - Kiyomi has imbued her work with wonder and I am honored to be blessed with two of her creations. Extremely well packaged in an artful manner. Her communication and attention to detail are second to none. Thanks, Kiyomi.

Clay goods in your everyday life

Everyday, we eat and drink. I really wanted to make my food life even more special. I personally believe that eating and drinking out of handmade bowls and cups would make this everyday "must-do" activity even more special, fun and intimate. That is why I started clay work.

While you talk to your friends over dinner or tea, if your fingers keep touching the uneven rim or keep coming back to a dent of a cup I made, one of my goals is accomplished!

One day in 2009, I worked too hard by throwing for 6 or 7 hours straight (don't do that, fellow potters!) and I damaged my shoulder. Then, I really had to rest my shoulder for months, and decided to spend time on promoting myself and found Etsy. That's how I started my shop on Etsy. I've been enjoying so much meeting and communicating with customers all over the world. It is my honor that my work is used in their everyday life in many continents!

*Overseas shipping*
I am very happy to send my work to your country!
Due to recent increase (1/27/2013) of USPS shipping fees, listing shipping fees for overseas became very tricky.

All the international shipping costs are based on USPS First Class Mail. The cost only applies up to the package of 4 pound (1.8 kg). When the total shipping weighs more than 4 pounds, it will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail. The difference in fee will be invoiced separately.

When you order multiple items, give me a message beforehand, so I will give you the more accurate cost.

*Within USA"
If you live in West Coast, the shipping can be lower than it is indicated. So, if you are purchasing multiple, contact me. So I can adjust it to the best rate for ya!


All packages within the United States and international are shipped with USPS First Class or Priority Mail, and do not include insurance, confirmation or tracking number as I want to keep your shipping cost as low as possible. If you feel comfortable with insurance, I would be happy to add it with additional cost. That will be only for within the United States. Sorry, there is no tracking number for international delivery.

By the way, I am trying to take part in conserving our mother earth resource in my own sense. I use recycle bubble wrap, paper and newspaper to to wrap your items. But I will make sure it does not affect the strength of package.
Refunds and Exchanges
I carefully pack it to the best of my ability, however if they arrive with damage or any problem, please contact me. I will try my best to solve it.
